Tough call...: Although most extractions do not have major post operative pain or swelling, why take the chance? Have your dentist shave down the top of the tooth so it does not hit your opposing gums. That will temporarily resolve the issue. After the wedding, schedule the extraction.

See your Dentist: The last thing you want is a Dental Emergency the day of your wedding. See your Dentist. Perhaps tooth can be adjusted so it doesn't hit the opposing gum, and then removed after the wedding.
